As an orphan, it's probably not surprising that Lucinda doesn't know the birthplaces of her parents (viz., NY and OH).

5.  1920 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  not found, though my search was not exhaustive.

6.  Excerpts from The Avalanche, a newpaper published in Grayling, Crawford Co., MI (online at Lewis R. Ward's "Ward Family Web Site"; dates at the end of each excerpt are the publication dates):
In Fredericville, at the residence of T.A. DEAN, justice Wm. T. LEWIS officiating, Oliver W. CHAMBERLAIN, of the firm of O.G. CHAMBERLAIN & Sons, and Miss Lucinda M. HASKINS, all of Fredericville. [Lansing papers please copy.]
The gentleman is too well known to our readers to require any introduction [shrieek!]; and the bride, though an orphan, is quite prominently connected, being a niece of Mrs. M.D. OSBAND, recently from Lansing, and grand-daughter of Dr. Thomas HOSKINS, who was while living a physician of Lansing.  We feel that both have reason to be congratulated, and they have our best wishes for their future prosperity and a long life of conubial bliss. (27 Apr 1882)
-O. W. CHAMBERLAIN, of the firm of Chamberlain & Sons, has sold his interest in their saw mill to his brother, Emerson, and is now with Wright & Davis at Bradford Lake. (24 Aug 1882)
